Best for Romance - Expert review of Harbour House

Romantics and ocean lovers will love the vistas and picture-perfect surrounds here.

I've been coming to this restaurant for a long time now. For family birthdays and excursions to Kalk Bay years ago, and later, when I moved to this pretty little fishing village, it became a special supper go-to and it remains a special occasion bet. The views are incredible, the East African island interiors enough to coax you into a holiday frame of mind and the menu is peppered with seafood favourites.

Food and drink: 

The mostly seafood menu has had a shake up of late. Meaty grills and mouth-watering salads also feature. The wine list is on the small side but has plenty of seafood-friendly choices.

Recommended dishes: 

The paprika calamari remains a favourite but new choices like the bouillabaisse and ceviche salad are worth a try. I always have the tempura prawn tian - it's fantastic and the oysters are excellent too. Hungry? Go for broke with the seafood platter.

Ambience: 

A happy buzz permeates this restaurant - come during summer or at the weekend and it's heaving.

Service: 

For the most part it's efficient, but it can be shaky when it's busy.

Location: 

Kalk Bay Harbour.

Price advice: 

Main course are, on average, 120 rand.

Tables to book: 

Go for window seats on summer days and moonlit nights.

Other useful branches: 

Visit sister eateries in the building: Live Bait for a taverna-style experience and Polana for tapas and robust bites. Laid-back al fresco eatery Sirocco can be found on the Main Road, close to the station.
